Nutrition Major, BS in Health and Human Sciences – Basic Science Concentration

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: College of Education, Health, and Human Sciences

The Nutrition major is designed for students interested in basic and applied sciences, and students are able to pursue one of two concentrations: the Dietetics Concentration or the Basic Science Concentration. The Basic Science Concentration of the Nutrition Major prepares students for graduate study in biological and health sciences or for health professional programs, such as pharmacy and medicine. Additional coursework is necessary to meet health professional program prerequisites and integration of this coursework should be coordinated closely with the academic advisor and/or pre-health advising as these requirements will vary by program. Students completing this track are not eligible to apply to any ACEND-accredited supervised practice programs.

uTrack Requirements

Universal Tracking (uTrack) is an academic monitoring system designed to help students stay on track for timely graduation. In order to remain on track, students must complete the minimum requirements for each tracking semester, known as milestones. Milestones include successful completion of specified courses and/or attainment of a minimum GPA. uTrack requirements only affect full-time, degree-seeking students who first entered Fall 2013 or later. uTrack does not apply to transfer students who entered prior to Fall 2015.

Requirements for Transition to Upper Division

Students who have completed 45 hours of coursework and are on track to enter term 5 of the Basic Science Concentration curriculum must apply for transition to upper division courses and faculty advisor assignment. Applications are due May 1 and are available on the CEHHS Office of Advising and Student Services website Students must follow the curriculum and complete the prerequisite requirements on schedule in order to complete the degree program on time. Missed prerequisites may delay graduation by at least one year. In order to graduate with a major in nutrition, regardless of concentration, students must earn a grade of C or better in every required nutrition course plus in prerequisite courses where noted.
